SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Desert Quartzite LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of First Solar Development LLC, applied for a right-of-way (ROW) grant for a photovoltaic solar project, application number CACA–049397, with the Bureau of Land Management. The Applicant proposes to construct, operate, maintain, and decommission the DQSP in the southern California inland desert. The Project would generate up to 450 megawatts (MW) using solar photovoltaic (PV) technology. The ROW grant application was originally filed for 7,245 acres on September 28, 2007, but has since been revised. The total project area under application for BLM and County approval is 5,275 acres, including 5,115 acres of BLM-administered lands for the ROW grant, and 160 acres of private land for the Riverside County Conditional Use Permit. Within this application area, the Applicant has proposed a project that would occupy 3,831 acres. This includes 3,560 acres for the portion of the solar facility on BLM-managed public lands; 54 acres for the proposed 230 kilovolt (kV) generation interconnection [gen-tie] line on BLM public lands, two acres for the offsite portion of a buried telecommunications line on BLM public lands, 56.8 acres of temporary projects, 4.5 acres for the external access road and 154 acres for the portion of the solar facility on private lands. The larger acreage under application would allow the BLM and the County to consider various site layouts as project alternatives in the environmental analyses for the proposed project. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:03 Aug 09, 2018 Jkt 244001 Although the Notice of Intent (NOI) to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement for the Desert Quartzite Solar Project and a possible amendment to the California Desert Conservation Area (CDCA) plan, 80 FR 12195 (March 6, 2015), stated that the Project would be capable of generating 300 MW, advances in photovoltaic solar technology will allow the generation of additional megawatts on the same footprint proposed in the project’s Plan of Development. In addition to the proposed action, the draft EIS/EIR considers a ‘‘no action’’ alternative and two action alternatives. Alternative 2, Resource Avoidance, would authorize a 450-MW PV array on approximately 2,845 acres, and Alternative 3, Reduced Project Alternative, would authorize a 285-MW PV array on approximately 2,112 acres. Like the Proposed Action, under each of these alternatives, the BLM would amend the CDCA plan to allow the project. Under the No Action Alternative, the BLM would deny the ROW application, and would not amend the CDCA plan to allow the project. The BLM has identified Alternative 2, Resource Avoidance, as the BLM Preferred Alternative for the draft EIS. The BLM and its cooperating agencies are seeking comments on the draft EIS, including the comparison of alternatives presented in the document. Riverside County is the lead agency for the State under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The draft plan amendment EIS/EIR was prepared as a joint Federal/State environmental document that analyzes the impacts of the Project under both NEPA and CEQA. Public input is important and will be considered in the environmental and land-use planning analysis. Please note that public comments and information submitted (including names, street addresses, and email addresses of persons who submit comments) will be available for public review and disclosure at the above address during regular business hours (8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.), Monday through Friday, except holidays.

Pasqual Band of Diegueno Mission Indians of California; and Sycuan Band 
of the Kumeyaay Nation, hereafter referred to as ``The Tribes.''

History and Description of the Remains

    At an unknown date, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual were removed from an unknown cremation site in the Mason 
Valley, San Diego County, CA. In 1972, the Riverside Metropolitan 
Museum purchased the cremated human remains together with associated 
funerary objects from Charles F. Irwin of Long Beach, CA. No known 
individuals were identified. The six associated funerary objects 
include: Three lumps of burned asphaltum, one length of 14 fused glass 
beads, one burned fiber cloth, and one piece of asphaltum with burned 
plant remains and 3-ply cordage inclusions.
    It was determined through collections research and geographic 
location that the cremated human remains and associated funerary 
objects are of Kumeyaay/Diegueno origin from Mason Valley, San Diego 
County, CA. Museum records indicate ``Indian Cremation Remains.'' Mason 
Valley extends through San Diego and Imperial Counties as well as Baja 
Norte. While the nation of original inhabitants has been called 
``Southern Diegueno,'' ``Diegueno-Kamia Ipai-Tipai,'' and ``Mission 
Indians,'' the tribes prefer to be called Kumeyaay. The Kumeyaay are a 
federation of autonomous self-governing bands that have clearly defined 
territories and are represented by The Tribes.

Determinations Made by the Riverside Metropolitan Museum

    Officials of the Riverside Metropolitan Museum have determined 
that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of one individual of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the six objects 
described in this notice are reasonably believed to have been placed 
with or near individual human remains at the time of death or later as 
part of the death rite or ceremony.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of 
shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the Native 
American human remains and associated funerary objects and The Tribes.

Additional Requestors and Disposition

    Lineal descendants or representatives of any Indian Tribe or Native 
Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to 
request transfer of control of these human remains and associated 
funerary objects should submit a written request with information in 
support of the request to Robyn G. Peterson, Ph. D., Museum Director, 
Riverside Metropolitan Museum 3580 Mission Inn Avenue, Riverside, CA 
92501, telephone (951) 826-5792, email [email protected], by

come forward, transfer of control of the human remains and associated 
funerary objects to The Tribes may proceed.
    The Riverside Metropolitan Museum is responsible for notifying The
